You should do ok. Once you have one or more finished you will be familiar with the amount of time for each process as well as being able to work with the RT7Lite like you had been using it for some time.

I'd been fairly successful in playing around with this, but I've come across another problem. While I had RT7 open and an iso opened up inside of it, my friend shut the computer down. Now whenever I try to open RT7, I get the following error:



Now I've unmounted everything as totally as I can think of. I even opened up my virtual machine, unmounted everything, and shut it down- even though this filepath doesn't lead there. What else can I do?

Open an admin cmd prompt and type:

dism /cleanup-wim

then press enter.

I just tried that (Right click, Run as Admin, I'm sure of it.) and it said successful. I even reinstalled RT7, but I'm still getting the same error. I had previously emptied out the RT_Mount folder it refers to, but found that it had filled up with another 8.something GB of what looks like the insides of an iso (or 2!). I'm deleting it again right now, but taking ownership of 1/2 of that is taking a while...

Edit: I totally deleted both the folders "RT Mount" and "RT Mount Boot" themselves, and ran the cmd line again, and finally got it reopened! I'm not sure but that's probably what did it this time. Thanks!

This is what I was trying to warn you about. The program needs to finish cleaning up and removing the temp folder created to mount an image. Now you will have to remove it manually which will require another tool.

The best solution found requires the additional right click option for taking ownership over files and folders. Take Ownership Shortcut

Once you have added the TakeOwnership option to the right click menu you browse to the location of the RT_Mount folder and right click on it to take ownership over it. As the command prompt window first opens right click on the same folder a second time to watch all files in it being totaled.

As the files are being counted in the properties screen you will also be taking ownership over them at the same time. This will allow you afterwards to right click one last time to select the delete option.

If you try unchecking the read only box it won't hold when you click the apply button. This method of clicking twice can also be used to remove other tuff folders like the Windows.old rather then trying to delete each sub folder and files one at a time. The RT7Lite will then start up normally after the first RT_Mount folder is cleared.

I know this, but as I said my friend accidentally caused the program to quit without properly finishing what I/it had open. I even told my friend to put the computer to "Hibernate," but he just hit "Shut Down," expecting to be asked in a dialog box whether he wanted to "Log Off, Shut Down, or Hibernate," (even though the XP dialog box he was thinking of has the last option as "Restart.")

Before posting here, I had previously tried to follow the filepath to the RT Mount folder. I just deleted everything I found there, after taking ownership. I've had the Take Ownership shortcut in my context menu since I set up this install. *Just* deleting the folder didn't work, though. I posted here, followed SIW2's cmd line, still got the error. I then double-checked the RT Mount folder again. Everything was back again. So I deleted it all, again, and re-ran the cmd line, again. Then it opened with no problem. So I'm all good again now. =)

I was simply pointing out what would happen if the program is closed up prematurely before the cleaning process was finished. The trick for removing the RTMount folder when an image is tied however is not just clicking once to take ownership but to click a second time right when the command prompt window is indicating files are now owned.

The second right click to bring up the properties screen insure all subs and files are also now owned making deletion possible. The RTMount folder would otherwise remain undeletable even when unchecking the read only box to see it automatically rechecked off again. The solution found for this does work immediately making things easier.

No I was just explaining the one snare I ran into here with the program and the solution found when trying to manually remove the temp folder the RT7Lite creates while running.

There's a catch with the taking ownership where as the contents are tallied ownership is then over them as well as the main folder itself rather then trying to go into each sub to take ownership over individual items.

That second right click to bring up the properties while the activity is being seen in the command prompt that appears was found effective rather then being stumped on how to remove it.

From C:\ ?

Is there any possibility to do this from the command prompt? (because my W7 freezes while launching.
I tried with rt_7_litewin7_Vistax64.exe, but it stopped because an an image cannot be created.
